MOLASSES + RUM BRAISED PORK BELLY

Paul Yellin THE RHUM CHEF

(serves 6 + )

WHAT YOU NEED

1 side ( 5 lbs + ) fresh Pork belly
64 oz chicken stock
16 oz water
3 cups of Barbados blackstrap molasses
2 cloves garlic
2 pods of dry star anise
2 sticks of cinnamon
1 jalapeo or scotch bonnet pepper cut in half
black peppercorns
2 bay leaf
kosher or sea salt
brown sugar


WHAT YOU DO

Rub under side ( not fat side ) of pork belly with a mix of salt and brown sugar
marinate overnight or 6 + hrs

Heat chicken stock , water, molasses, and other ingredients to a rolling boil in a deep
and wide braising pan ( deep enough to cover or mostly cover pork belly 6 -8
inches ) place pork meat side down , fat side up.
Cover pan securely. as airtight as possible, with a lid or foil cover pinched at the
edge all around

Braise in a 350 -380 degree oven for at least 3 - 4 hrs ( a little less in a
convection oven ) .. test it with a pull test if it peels off and shreds easily . its
done. Make sure the liquid is not evaporated and meat isnt stuck .so you may
want to test it at the half way point. If it is securely covered, liquid WONT evaporate.

Remove belly from stock , let cool for 10 -15 minutes and then easily remove top
layer of fat and with a spoon , scrape off remaining excess fat there is still more
than enough flavor left trust me. Cut into desired serving sizes .2 for canaps or
tastes larger for meals. It is very rich, so use your judgment.

Transfer liquid to a stock pot and reduce to a thicker consistency for a light drizzle
over pork when serving.

STRAWBERRY CRME BRULEE

Paul Yellin THE RHUM CHEF

(serves 6 + )

WHAT YOU NEED

1 pint / container or fresh Strawberries
1-2 cups Barbados Rum
1 cup milk
vanilla essence or fresh vailla pod ( better ! )
3-4 egg yolk
6-8 tbs powdered sugar ( your taste )
3 tbs corn starch
lite brown sugar / white will work as well


WHAT YOU DO

Remove tops of berries and cut bottom so it sits flat.
Use mellon baller and scoop out strawberry (not too deep to make hole in bottom)
but as much as you can to make a cavity.
Drizzle or soak with rum - chill in fridge for at least 30 mins will hold nicely

Heat milk and vanilla to a boil.
Whisk sugar, yolks + cornstarch together and then temper with milk.whisking to
avoid clumps.

Return to low heat in a stainless bowl or clean pan constantly whisking to keep
consistency and not make scrambled eggs (think crme anglicize) add a little more
rum to give it taste.

When thickened, place in a freezer or cold fridge until totally cooled down.

Slowly pipe into berry cavities, sprinkle with sugar and torch with a blowtorch /
butane torch.

Serve immediately - it CAN be held in fridge or cool room for a little while , but
acids in berry will start to break down sugar into runny texture

ENJOY !!!
